More than 800 (yes, eight hundred) people participated in the issues around improving multilingual features and APIs in Drupal 8 for the past two and a half years. Almost 500 issues have been resolved in this initiative as of this submission making Drupal 8 a truly outstanding release for everybody looking to create even single language non-English sites but especially those making multilingual sites. This session aims to show you around all the great improvements and give tips as to how to best utilize the new solutions.
